"Afternoon Delight" was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué and Double Nine-Patch blocks and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" inches square.

Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.

The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.

AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

Jujpergee, Thanks for the Lori Smith tip. I googled her name and just love, love, love her patterns for applique quilts.
I think maybe your two blocks are the pink flowers between the cross and the T and the on point block directly above the T.
I might just be changing out some of my blocks after looking at her site. HelenW

Jupergee, Very creative to put you name and the cross and flag on your Afternoon Delight. That takes up 7 of the nine shoo fly blocks you decided not to make, so you
only need 2 more substitute blocks. Since you like the applique so much, you could add some applique pieces to the blocks with the letters to give even more interest.
Kind of like how Janet Stone the alphabet quilter makes blocks. Just an idea. Your quilt is going to be beautiful, and I do like the name idea in blocks.Thanks for sharing. HelenW

This is my first post. I decided not to do the 9 - Shoo Fly blocks as I enjoy the applique more. I picked from other sources for those 9 blocks, as well as designing the cross and heart for my love of God and country. The letters are my last name. I haven't decided if I will put it at the top or bottom. I will still be doing the 64 double nine patches and have been cutting strips for them. All applique blocks have the same background, and the double nine patches are a tan color so the applique will stand out in the lighter color. All are batiks. None of the blocks will be trimmed until I assemble the quilt, so they are all oversize.

I'm having lots of fun. It certainly helps in this time of sheltering in! :)

bpalluzi, I too used weights to sub cut the units and have to agree that it made my cut units much neater, more accurate and much easier. Thank you for the great tip x

Finished March Blocks and waiting for April. I am loving getting the opportunity to see all the beautiful blocks everyone is making.
I also love the fact that I have learned a lot of ways to get the same finished blocks. Barbara, just wanted to mention that I think your
husband picked a great color, blue, for your Patriotic Pineapple quilt border. It is beautiful. Makes me want to make a patriotic quilt too.
